How to Turn your Neato Vacuum into a Security Device & Other Features of the Neato Connection

Want to get really creative with your smart home and secure your home as much as possible? With the Neato Connection you don't just automate cleaning your home, but transform your vacuum cleaner into a security device, and more!
Follow these steps to upgrade your Neato vacuum to ward away potential intruders:
  1. Create a small Neato activity zone in the Neato app right inside of your front door.
  2. Create a Routine in SimpleCommands that is triggered by an external motion detector or camera seeing motion when no one is home.
  3. Tell your Neato go to this activity zone to clean as the Routine's action.
  4. Sit back and wait as SimpleCommands executes this Routine whenever your Routine's triggers and conditions are met.

When this Routine is executed, your vacuum cleaner will rush to the front door, making a lot of noise and making it seem like someone is home. This could scare away any potential intruder, effectively turning your Neato into a home security device!


Other Neato Connection Features:

1. Cleaning Routines

It may be an obvious feature for an integration between SimpleCommands + Neato, but you can create automated Routines based on your schedule, location or other actions in your smart home that clean your home exactly where and when you want. Simply create a Routine with your desired cleaning zones and triggers let SimpleCommands do the rest!

2. Neato Chimes

Not only can you turn your Neato vacuum cleaner into a security device with SimpleCommands, but you can turn it into a mobile doorbell/notifications center. Use Routines to tell your Neato to chime whenever someone presses your Ring doorbell, your alarm is tripped, a leak detector senses a leak, and more!

And that is just a few examples of everything you can do with the Neato Connection. Get creative and see what else you can use with Neato + SimpleCommands!
